Our take on the JL Audio CP110-W0v3

by John Pollard
JL Audio

Enclosed Subwoofers 101

An enclosed subwoofer is a box with a subwoofer already installed. The advantage to buying an enclosed sub is that the manufacturer made the sub, then designed and built the box as a perfect match, so you'll get the best possible performance. Every enclosed sub has a maximum RMS power handling rating, so pair it with an amp with a similar RMS power rating to get the best performance.

JL quality at a great price

JL Audio built the BassWedge CP110-W0v3 enclosure to make car-rattling bass for a reasonable price, without the need for a ton of power. The enclosure's designed to match the 10" sub loaded into it, so you know you'll get every ounce of performance out of this enclosure.

BassWedge CP110-W0v3 enclosure

An excellent combination

The CP110-W0v3 BassWedge contains one 10" W0v3 subwoofer that handles up to 300 watts RMS, and is loaded into a specially built slot-ported enclosure. The enclosure can be placed with the woofer firing downwards, or in typical front or rear firing applications, giving you immense bass regardless of how you place it.

Solid MDF enclosure

JL Audio uses state-of-the-art automated woodworking equipment to fabricate the high-quality MDF enclosure with rugged automotive carpeting, nickel-plated push terminals, and solid internal wiring. The enclosure is finished and inspected by hand at the manufacturing facility in Florida to ensure that you get the bass that you expect from JL Audio.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Overview: The JL Audio slot-ported BassWedge subwoofer enclosure is designed around JL Audio's 10" W0v3-4 (4Ω) subwoofer. Aggressive tuning delivers powerful bass without the need for a huge amplifier. The MDF enclosure is covered with gray carpet and has JL AUDIO logos embroidered across the top and front. The enclosure design offers a variety of installation options: forward, rear or down firing. The slot-port runs along the bottom of the enclosure and fires on the same plane as the woofer; the port mouth is flared to minimize air-flow noises.

Speaker Terminal: The enclosure uses one pair of nickel-plated, high current spring posts. The posts are located on the left side of the box and will accept pin connectors, single or dual banana plugs, or bare wire up to 10 gauge.

W0v3 Woofer Features:

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. As a result of DMA optimization, the 10W0v3-4 motor displays linear force over a long excursion range, and also maintains a stable fixed magnetic field in the gap over a wide power range. The result is a reduced distortion, faithfully reproduced transients, and tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Elevated Frame Cooling: The elevated frame design of the 10W0v3-4 delivers cool air through slots directly above the top plate to the voice coil. This not only enhances power handling, but also sound quality by minimizing dynamic parameter shifts and power compression.
  • Rear Gasket: The woofer has a rear gasket to provide an optimal seal when installing into the enclosure.
  • Long Excursion: The subwoofer has an Xmax of 11.4mm, giving you louder bass with less distortion.

Optional Grille: The optional SGRU-10 grille (item number 136SGR1031, sold separately) can be added to protect the woofer cone.

Dimensions: The CP110-W0v3 enclosure isn't symmetrical; it's approximately 15-5/8" wide, 14" tall at its tallest point (toward the front), 12" tall at its shortest point (toward the back), 17-5/8" deep at the base, and 13-5/8" deep at the top.

Unfortunately I was prompted to look for new equipment after my truck was broken into and cleaned out. I previously had a jl 8" in a small box with a 150w kicker amp with an old school alpine cd105. I purchased this encloser with S/O m2100 and some polk dxi65s for the doors . All hooked up to the kenwood dpx500bt and just woww! This sub hits hard and I was actually worried thay it would be under powered , but not the case at all . All this in a 2007 single cab tundra breathing new life into my work truck. What i had in the truck before was not bad but definately wasnt this level of bump and power.

JL Audio....one of the top performers

Written By Joe, Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Look...I am not into the whole trunk rattling, crap sounding. A good system is more about SQ to me. I am done with the days of waking up the whole neighborhood from a mile away. I have been a fan of JL Audio for many years and i was not looking for anything over the top...just to sure up some much needed low end bass. My stock system sounded pretty good but with the addition of the JL Audio basswedge my car slams inside. Paired with an MTX amp putting out 300rms x 1 at 4 ohms with the the recommended output of this JL Audio sub with 300rms range i am pushing it right where this sub performs the best and let me tell you...for a single 10" sub i a have more than enough bass for my needs that i can feel in my stomach. Thanks to Ziggy at crutchfield tech support for helping with fine tuning my amp and receiver this box is dialed in perfect and my car thumps inside with absolutely no truck rattling at all. JL Audio will always be my go to top choice and this sub although entry level will astound those looking for true sound quality but still can give sound pressure levels also.
Pros:
Low end excursion. small set up perfect for trunks without taking up much space.
Cons:
none

Nice Subwoofer

Written By Chris, Denver,CO on Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great Subwoofer if you have a small space to fill. i have a 2012 Camaro with i tiny trunk. The upgraded factory stereo is pretty good but lacks any kind if bass. The JL subwoofer fits perfectly in the trunk and just under the rear factory 6x9's. Originally had it hooked up with a JL class a/b 2 channel stereo amp using the stereo wire inputs (high level) and wasn't sounding that great. Switched the amp with a Kenwood mono amp I had in my SUV and bought a high level to RCA converter. What a difference, sounds awesome. Not a ground shaking bass like my suv with two subs, but perfect amount for my Camaro, Still will shake the mirrors and vibrate the trunk if that's what you're after. Very good product to round out your system without taking up all the trunk space
Pros:
Looks good, sounds good, small footprint
Cons:
none that i have found yet,

Awesome subwoofer

Written By MJP, CT on Saturday, August 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a great solution to a dilemma I was having. I wanted a sub that would deliver punchier base for my rock songs, but still be able to shake the rear-view mirror for the electronic music I listen to. I also drive a Honda Insight (2012), so I wanted something with a modest power draw that wouldn't tax the battery too much. Because the sub's only 10", less power is required to move it, and it has a tight enough response on rock songs to suit my tastes. On the other hand, the ported enclosure means that songs with a lot of bass can still make your entire car vibrate tremendously, an effect that is still cool even if you don't listen to your music that loud normally. My Honda is a hatchback and I put Dynamat in my trunk and front doors, so that likely helped with the acoustics, but this sub is powerful enough even with only 200W supplied to be louder than I would ever practically want to listen to (and I like a fair amount of bass!). If you listen to straight up rock or country only I'd try the sealed enclosure, and if you want a dirtier sound for straight up electronic I'd probably go to at least a 12", but if you're taste in music is all over and you want something that suits all of your needs, this is an elegant solution that delivers.
Pros:
-Versatile bass response for a range of songs -Sturdy build quality -No assembly required
Cons:
-Not a con really, but it's very large. Be prepared to dedicate a fair amount of cargo space.

Small but powerful! Added this sub to a stock head unit in a tiny Scion IQ and let me say wow! I am sold on JL audio products now paired it with a 300 watt alpine M-50 mono amp and this thing just about beats the windows off the car!
Pros:
Small package well made nice look can hit the lowest of lows but still has the hard punch of a sealed box.
Cons:
PRICE!!
